If you have a screenshot, where Yasu says "My name is Sayo\Yasuda\Shannon\Kanon" or any of them saying "My name is Yasu" I'm hapily giving you the victory.
The EP8 manga mentions that Kanon and Shannon share a single body. Like you said, a mystery requires thinking, so it shouldn't be hard to put 1+1 together.

I hope so. I really want to see all these mysterious shkannon proofs.

EDIT: Even of they share a body, that doesn't prove any connection to Yasu.

I don't know much about rosatrice theory but in the link that you posted there was some strange things. In the 4th twilight, how rosa knew where kinzo's corpse is hidden? I always thought that after kinzo's death Genji hid his corpse where no one could find ... Rosa would need to know the place so she could get his corpse and throw his corpse in the furnace. And I don't believe that krauss and Natsuhi would trust Nanjo and Kumasawa enough to say something about this... So I think that only Natsuhi, Krauss and Genji know about the localization of kinzo's corpse...

jTiKey, if you think Van Dine applies, then there is still the issue of "there is one culprit" not two, or three, but ONE.

She is the Ushiromiya head that has all the gold, and knows that Kinzo died and where he is.

Shkannon is implied in the story, but it is a lie.
Ryu liked the idea of kanon and shannon having one body. So he made a big story about it. Red doesn't support shkannon. There cannot be any kind of those creatures in a detective novel. But he likes saying something in red, and them making a story otherwise =D

There are 3 truth in umineko. 2 are told and one must everyone find alone.

"there is one culprit"
You surely miss the accomplice part.

Since like episode 1 till 6?
Since there is Dlanor and Willard?
Since there is detective authority?
Since there is murder mystery?
Since the protagonist must solve the puzzle, who killed his family?
Since Erika?
Since Beatrice loved mystery novels?
Since Battler loved mystery novels?
Sine like from the very beggining the whole plot is to find the culprit.

Show me where Ryukishi said it's a detective novel.

All those things just tell me it's partially about detective novels, not that it is one and follows the rules of one. You can't accept one person pretending to be two people, but you accept Erika as a valid detective? You accept Dlanor and Will, who are meta personifications of narrative rules?

So you ARE engaging in special pleading. Your arguments are not even worth addressing because you're distorting logic in a fallacious manner where you can never be indicated to be wrong, even with red. Have a nice day, stick a fork in it.

What about the forgeries? And Beatrice'ss entry in Maria's diary.
Is it implied anywhere that Rosa likes Mysteries?

Not to mention a lot of the fantasy scenes completely lose context if Rosa is the culprit; Like Eva killing Rosa (3), Beatrice threatening Rosa (2), Rosa and Marias escape (2) and Shannons confrontation with Beatrice (where Beatrice kills Shannon), to name a few.

These provide absolutely no context if Rosa is the culprit. Are they just for show?

I agree with AT, we should have stopped taking the bait a lot earlier, instead even more people joined the "show". Anyway... I am out of this.

This is beyond idiotic, but so are all Rosatrice theories this far into the story. That particular scene in the manga wasn't being "observed" by anyone but us, the readers. You'd have to claim that Battler was purposely misleading us instead of anyone inside the game.

Its daft! Why would we care for a story that would be so blatant in its trickery? Why would we believe anything thats portrayed in the story if this was the case? This is exactly the scenario that Beatrice envisioned in EP2 when all trust breaks down.

I think you've got the wrong idea about the games. While the red text is useful (albeit that it can be used in misleading ways) the rest of the text is also vital. If things are as you say and the only things we count as "real" in Umineko or its gameboards are the things said in red text, we're limited entirely to the following: http://umineko.wikia.com/wiki/Red_Truth

That makes for a really, really short game, and an absurd one. Nobody can solve Umineko using only the red text.

Talking specifically about the names, we're told right from the start that Shannon and Kanon are just their work names. We're told early on that Shannon's real given name (presumably her legal given name) is Sayo. Furthermore, Shannon and Kanon aren't names that make sense to have been given as a full name to children in an orphanage in Japan.

If we take what you're saying as true, then neither Kanon nor Shannon has a surname. Other people whose surnames are never given in red include: Rosa, Maria, Hideyoshi, George, and Rudolf. People whose given names we never see in red include: Nanjo, Kumasawa, and Genji. There's no red saying that those people have those names...only the white text. Is it a lie?

(The red can be used to mislead. However, that's irrelevant to the issue at hand here...)

While what you're saying there is broadly true, it does not apply to the issue of the characters having names that aren't stated in red. There is no contradiction between the red text and Shannon being a pseudonym and her legal given name being Sayo. Equally, there is no contradiction between the red text and Rudolf's surname being Ushiromiya. If you want to argue that it is, you must also argue that the various people listed above are not Ushiromiyas and that the servants' given names were lies, and so forth.

We have red text saying that people can only use their own names, but no red text saying that the only names people can possess are those used in the red text.

If you try to solve a detective mystery without Knox and Dine, it's like trying to solve math without knowing numbers.
Hey, wait a second here. You're totally wrong about that. In several ways.

In Umineko itself, there is never any confirmation that the story complies with Knox and Dine. In fact, it actually says "No Dine. No Knox. No fair." That is absolutely something that should put you on notice that Knox and/or Dine might not apply to this story.

Secondly, you are putting far too much emphasis on the value of those rules. They were written as a response to the non-fair-play things that people often wrote in their mysteries, and it's not as if people all suddenly mended their ways after the rules were written. And Knox's rules at least were written with a satirical bent. In fact, Knox's rules were even published in Essays in Satire (1928). There are even mysteries which deliberately go out of their way to break every single on of the Knox rules. It's extremely foolish to assume that every mystery in existence is fair play and that Knox and Dine will apply.

Thirdly, the version of the rules of Knox and Dine used in Umineko are not entirely the same as the real ones.

Hahaha, I just finished typing up a post here, joining in...but of course I acknowledge that you're right about this issue. It's just really, really difficult to not argue in an Umineko forum.

This applies to all games!!!EP4
Furudo Erika only increases it by one person.EP5

The last line from EP5 in context is referring to the total number of people. Since the total number of people on the island cannot exceed 17 and Erika increases the total by one it is a safe assumption to say the number of people on the island before Erika arrived was 16 or less.

My Blue Truth: This can all be solved if Shannon and Kanon are the same person.

Now solve this without Shkanon.

A friendly reminder folks.

This forum is not a chat-room and you do not need to doublepost on every page just to give everyone an answer. I have already merged dozen of posts on the last pages alone and I must ask that you use the edit button whenever your comment is the last one in the thread.

Another thing to avoid is to try and moderate the thread yourselves. If you see someone doing something he shouldn't, then please report them, but don't make drama in the thread along the way. In such cases, both the person reporting and the reported could receive an infraction.

And if itsn't not mystery, WTH are you here agruing about? If it's drama or fantasy, then every opinion is good, and you complaning about mine just makes you a short-tempered person that can't live with somebody on the same forum with a different opinion.

I proclaim that Furudo Erika is the detective.

In Rosatrice, it is implied, that Yasu is Rosa's creator. It's here story in a metaphoric telling. So, Rosa is the dressed Beatrice, that Battle saw in game 2 and 4. Rosa did write the stories.

Hello sir. Nice to meet you and your excelent behaviors, your kindness and smartness.

I'll tell this again:
White text is false ONLY if there is a red truth that says otherwise the red does, that means it is a lie.
Every magic scene is actually a lie, and get be used as an argument, only if it has red truth attached (like the sakutaro revival scene).

So, did you got it, what i mean with "your white text means nothing"?
Game 7 and 8 have no human-detective. There is no objective point. It's only magic.

Furudo Erika had no influence on any of Beato's games before now.
She does not exist in the worlds before this one, nor does she influence them.
Furudo Erika only increases it by one person.

Say hello to Rosa as Beatrice, George as her accompice, and Dr. Nanjo, who was bribed to do and say what the both will say.

There is no error with the red truth in every game.

After Georges dead in red, no more homicide kills are made by Beatrice.
Rosa dies after the epitaph is solved every time.
Dr. Nanji lies about peoples death.

Haha you go trough all of umineko and dont understand the burden of proof. You are the one claiming this is a mystery, now dont use a devil's proof to try to get by.

Still stuck on what "people" mean in this story? Hint, its not what you think it is.

Quote:

The truth can be used to mislead, specially when its there to make things more complicated than they are. The perfect answer to how the red truth is used in the story is seen in EP8, with Maria's riddle. Her "hint" (what the red truths are supposed to be) overburden people with useless facts that have nothing to do with the actual answer.

vvvv
Erika pretty much solved all of this already in EP8s manga. Unless its shown that Rosa can use a name trick like its being hinted it wont be her. EVERYTHING points to it being Shkanon, you just have to deal with it. Dont like it? Then you have an issue with Umineko in general not living up to your standards.

e- This arguments have been done to death before. Can we have an honest roll call of all previous "Rosatrice" supporters please?

Stuck on the human's name, who killed Nanjo. Nobody could give me one, even thought there are 17 of them.

btw, there is no difference between "people" and "human" in japanese.

And there you are mistaken.
人間:human being; human; man
人: person; human; character; counter for people, performers, professions, etc.

Counter for people:
人, 方, 名, etc.

And concerning the human name:
A boy is born John but his parents have to give him up for adoption, his adoptive parents then decide to name him Richard.
What is this human's name?
